I know, I know....
I have simply been going through some "stuff". This past weekend, it was just getting used to having my hubby back home with us - YEAH!!
But there is another thing, something I don't really want to discuss quite yet. I will, eventually. For now, it is just tumbling around in my brain ~ it actually kinda hurts, and I need to deal with it a bit before sharing it. It was even hard for me to share it with Dean. I have felt so out-of-control, and frankly, so mad. Now that God is beginning to show me how HE wants me to deal with this, well, I can just begin to feel a spark of hope....maybe....
In the meantime, please, continue with your "Challenge". I have just complied everyone's info and I have a surprise for you all. Keep up your determination, looking to God first and foremost, even before the experts and the books, the charts and the "scientific facts". Let us be hungry for HIM!!
On another note, I just finished reading When You Rise Up: A Covenantal Approach to Homeschooling by R.C. Sproul. Yes, it makes some mighty strong statements. I have it sitting next to our toilet (hey, that's where I get most of my reading done, it seems) and I'm hoping my dh will read through parts of it and give me his opinion. If nothing else, it really encouraged me that YES, we are doing what God desires in this area. Yes, children are a blessing. Yes, Deut. 6 (and the WHOLE Bible) is TRUTH!! Thank you God for the blessings you have given to Dean and I - they are simply amazing!!
Ok, I have more to say, but the baby is fussing.
God Bless you~
